Engaging with Indigenous Australia: Exploring the conditions for effective relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities - Closing the Gap Clearinghouse October 2013

This paper from Closing the Gap Clearinghouse provides an overview of the research-based evidence on how engagement with Indigenous communities can be developed and maintained.

It also examines what the research indicates are the conditions that enable governments, non-government organisations and the private sector to engage effectively with Indigenous communities, as well as what research says about how conditions for effective engagement between governments and Indigenous communities can be enhanced. The major focus is on research around government engagement at the regional level.
